1. Nigeria: Burna Boy to feature on Justin Bieber’s forthcoming album ‘Justice’
Nigerian singer, Burna Boy has been confirmed as one of the featured acts on Justin Bieber’s forthcoming album, ‘Justice.’ Walmart made a post about the list of featured acts on Justin Bieber’s forthcoming album ‘Justice’ and Grammy-nominated singer, Burna Boy was named in the list.
Justice is Justin Bieber’s sixth studio album and will be released on March 19, 2021. The album features acts like Khalid, Chance The Rapper, Benny Blanco, Giveon, Beam The Kid Laroi, Daniel Ceasar, and Burna Boy.
2. USA: Emmanuel Acho to host ‘The Bachelor’ television special
Emmanuel Acho, Nigerian-American author, and former National Football League player will host a post-finale special of “The Bachelor” after the show’s longtime host, Chris Harrison, said he was “stepping aside” due to comments he made that were dismissive of racism.
Acho, who wrote the book “Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man” and hosts a show by the same name, said in a statement that it was “both an honor and privilege” to host the hour long special on March 15. The installment of a Black host caps a season that featured the ABC franchise’s first Black “Bachelor,” Matt James, but has also been overshadowed by a series of controversies amid calls from the show’s fans to increase its efforts toward diversity and inclusion.
3. South Africa: Love Island South Africa premiere leaves SA fans angry
“Love Island SA” made its premiere on Sunday and South African fans are unhappy about the first episode. In the show 10 love hopefuls must couple up and live together all in the name of love and the chance to win R1 million ($67,000) in the process. The debut episode received various criticism, the initial criticism being the lack of diversity as the 10 cast members are made up of only two colored and two black contestants.
The episode itself also faced several production issues such as the music not being queued up properly, with one cast member walking out in silence. Audio from the on-set production team was heard, scenes ended abruptly with the end-credits being rolled in silence. And the overall video and sound quality being subpar were some of the issues that fans called out.
4. Ghana’s COVID-19 vaccination drive gets underway
Ghana’s mass vaccination program for COVID-19 got underway in Accra Monday morning with President Akufo-Addo, his wife Rebecca, Vice President Bawumia and his wife Samira taking the first vaccines.

The vaccines made by the Serum Institute of India (Covishield), arrived in Ghana on February 24, 2021. Key public officials such as the Speaker of Parliament and Members of Parliament, Chief Justice, and Justices of the Superior Court of Judicature will also take the vaccine publicly on Tuesday.
5. Former president Bartomeu arrested as police search offices in ‘Barcagate’ case
